The Mayans are breaking into what looks like a front house. They steal what they are looking for and torch the place. Jax is in a mini mart buying a few things when he hears the explosion. They drive up to it the next morning and the house is completely torched. All of their M4's and glocks are gone or destroyed. Not only that, but there were two Mexican woman hiding in some sort of secret room that ended up meeting their demise due to it. They discuss all of this with Sheriff Trammel, who is paid to deal with them the way they see fit...
